Abstract

Suggests that a neuropsychological examination (NE) using the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsychological Battery (LNNB) is useful to describe the higher cognitive and associated motor and sensory deficits that accompany brain injury. The structure of the NE is designed to evaluate all the major voluntary systems of the brain, including voluntary motor behavior, perception and production of verbal and nonverbal auditory stimuli, and short- and long-term memory. Discussion focuses on the use of the 11 scales of the LNNB (e.g., Motor, Rhythm, Visual, Memory) to examine the extent of impairment in 11 areas of behavior (e.g., sustained performance, self-monitoring, visual-spatial); and levels of interpretation of the LNNB.
